The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Justinian and Theodora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 38.088 billion Byzantians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 7,406 trillion bezants a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 194,448 bezants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 562,331 per year while the poor average 53,314, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Foreign musicians that Justinian and Theodora dislikes are turned away at the border, government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Byzant is ranked 19,739th in the world and 395th in the Rejected Realms for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,604.58 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
